Worthy Park Estate is a historic distillery in Jamaica that re-opened in 2005.
During the second year of distillation, 25 barrels of the high ester WPM marque were bottled in a unique, unrepeatable release. This is it: 100% pot still rum from estate grown molasses bottled 11 years later at natural strength, with zero additives and entirely aged in the tropics in x Bourbon barrels. Extremely limited allocation.

Tasting note: Beautiful deep amber - topaz colour. Highly aromatic, drier nose-feel is also compellingly pure, with golden syrup, raw sugar and dried grass-like notes developing dried mango / apricot, vanilla, caramel and sweet oak. Entry is bittersweet suggesting liquorice strap and golden syrup. Mid palate turns softer, creamier bordering on luxurious. Finish melts across the tongue, closing caney / grassy then oaky, nutty, spicy yet remarkably fresh. Near zero burn. Resonates over ten minutes with echoes of molasses and ripe tropical fruits. Exceptional. 57.5% Alc./Vol.
